IIRC Cloudflare Workers run at each Cloudflare PoP, which have higher geographical density than AWS regions, so latency experienced by end-users may be lower.

AWS has the same thing with Lambda@Edge

According to this[0] blog post Lambda@Edge has significantly longer latency (due in part to a smaller number of locations). Cloudflare also uses V8 isolates instead of whole VMs, so much lower overhead. Disadvantage is that you can only run JavaScript and WASM.

Nice. Will check them out. IIRC they are really affordable too (like all serverless stuff tbh)
